Rich and deeply spicy with the sweetness of anise, fennel and cassia. A touch of malt, Christmas cake and aniseed balls.
An initial earthiness with the bitterness of yellow gentian root, followed by cool mint freshness and sappy pine notes.
Light menthol pepper that develops into chocolatey notes. A zesty zip of coriander.
A herbaceous and intense gin that will stand up well to mixing; it seems like an obvious choice for a bold Negroni.
A crisp morning walk through a pine forest. There’s a real hit of earthy spice and a nod to Greek holidays enjoying a sip of ouzo, thanks to a pinch of anise, peeking through.
A richness as it hits the tongue through piney juniper, followed by that aniseed spice which is cut through by punchy citrus.
Fresher than I was expecting – the feeling you get about 10 minutes after using minty mouthwash.
This is a pretty punchy gin and I’d like to enjoy it for all its complexity in a gin and tonic.
